Last week, Kendall and Kylie Jenner sent the internet into a frenzy when they debuted a new collection of vintage t-shirts with their face superimposed on them. Since then, The Notorious B.I.G.’s mother, Voletta Wallace, called out the sisters for exploiting her late son, and they were even threatened with a lawsuit from Biggie’s estate.
I am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this. The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me. I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt. This is disrespectful , disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!
Now, American rock band The Doors are following through with a suit of their own.
According to TMZ, lawyers for the band sent a cease and desist letter to the sisters on Thursday (June 29) stating the t-shirts “tarnishes the band’s trademark.” They are reportedly now pursuing a lawsuit. The sisters have since apologized and removed the entire collection from their website.
